Can you have a go at writing your name again? I wonder if you can think of a silly rhyming name for yourselves? Mine would be: Povey, Bovey...what do you think? What would yours be? Can you tell me on Dojo?
Enjoy listening to one of our nursery favourites - 'The Gruffalo'
Remember that there will be a new weekly challenge on Mathseed!

Just Dance Kids 2014 Hickory Dickory Dock
Today's wake and shake! Can you copy the movements?
Here is another rhyming activity, can you have a go? Keep on aiming high!
Please find below a link to 'The National Literacy Trust' webpage. It gives us additional verses to the rhyme Hickory Dickory Dock, and also different ways we could move our bodies to the rhyme (some will not be relevant, however, can you think of your own moves instead?) When the clock strikes 2, you are asked to do 2 movements, same for 3 etc. How else could you move? Could you do 2 hops instead of claps, or pat your head or knees etc?
If you can, carefully cut out the clocks, can you put them in the correct order? Next, you could cut out the mice and put the correct amount on each clock to match the numeral
Can you find the numbers on the clock and recall what happened in the rhyme? E.g. Can you point to number 1? What happened when the clock struck 1? Then, you could practise your number formation!
I wonder if you can think about and draw a picture of your daily routine? Thinking about certain times in the day, what do you usually do first, second, third?
Story Time with Mrs Steward following on from her check-in video. This video made my little girl want to go and choose her favourite book, can you share your favourite book or maybe just a picture of it? Perhaps we could read it some time!

Mr Tumble singing 'Hickory Dickory Dock' - Can you see all of the clocks in this song? What shape are they? Are your clocks the same shape at home?
What shapes can you see in this picture? Can you describe them? How many squares are there?
Can you make your own mouse or clock from the story? You might do this using junk modelling, building bricks, painting; any way you choose!

Good morning Nursery! Some of you have told me that you are missing Mr Nally, so he has recorded a special video for us today!
Mr Nally spoke about the importance of exercise in his video this morning, this had made me want to go on a little walk...so for my exercise today, I am going to walk to my local shop with my little girl. If you go for a daily walk today as part of your exercise, perhaps you could gather some natural resources to make your clock - just like the picture below? This is like the things we would make when we go to Forest School! I might get my binoculars on and have a look what I can find on my walk too! I need to remember that if my clock is a circle, then I need to make sure that it has ONE CURVED SIDE. How many objects will I need?
Here are some rhyming strings, can you spot the odd one out? Which one does NOT rhyme?
Below is a link for a story called 'The Clock Tower' from The Literacy Shed. Please watch the story and then have a go or a think about some of the questions underneath...
'A Great Big Cuddle' - because I think we could all do with one of those at the moment! Enjoy a few lovely poems from this book!

Let's start 'Fantastic Friday' with a bit of fun, moving to 'Oti's Boogie Beebies!' She shows us moving up and down, like the mouse from our rhyme this week!
Can you copy the moves and enjoy the dancing?
Can you link the correct rhyming picture to the main image? There is a choice of 3, can you find which one rhymes?
Thinking about rhyming words, can you change some of the words in the rhyme? Here is one that Miss Povey has made up
Can you cut these pictures out carefully, you could use them to make puppets to re-enact the rhyme, perhaps with lollipop sticks or sticks from outdoors if you do not have any.
Can you find which pictures are the biggest and smallest? Maybe you could measure them using any blocks you may have? How many blocks tall is the largest clock? If you do not have any blocks, can you think of another way we might be able to measure them?
Phonics Song 2 (new version)
Let's end the week with a phonics song that the nursery children really enjoy! Have a lovely weekend!
Enjoy listening to Mrs Steward reading 'On the Way Home'
